I WALKED out of work this evening with a mate cheerily telling me he’s off to Turkey on holiday in the morning. Have fun pal.
The #turkey stream is suggesting there’s a bit of a stramash going on over there tonight, maybe a coup, maybe something else. As if that part of the world needs more excitement.

WHY France again?
It’s the question that’s been popping out of my radio all day. The answer’s simple and twofold. It’s because 1) French security and intelligence is a joke, and 2) there are lots of muslims in France. It’s as simple as that.
The French Prime Minister, Manuel Valls, today said that France will have to learn to live with terror. Fine, so France will have to accept its children being murdered by muslims. That’s what he’s suggesting, that’s how morally decrepit he is. And it’s entirely in keeping with the decadent mind of the governing class.
That’s until radicals are invited to do something about. Make no mistake, these are radical times. Yet again the response to Islam being Islam amounts to public buildings being illuminated and brainless saps changing facebook icons. But deep down more radical solutions to the catastrophe of immigration are becoming more palatable.
In the end, unless there’s a sudden and unlikely realisation, in the social democratic minds of European governments that their time is running out, the far Left and Right will be asked to solve the disasters that mainstream politicians have inflicted on European societies.

A horrific attack in Nice, France has killed at least 77 people according to first reports. It isn’t news any more. News is a day when there isn’t a Muslim terrorist attack. Tragic and sadly not rare.

In a second journalistic coup, ATW has secured Hillary Clinton’s speech announcing her Vice Presidential Pick, though we had to pay $2 million for it cause she gets paid a lot for her speeches. Excerpts follow:
“My fellow Americans, this is a historic moment. In the face of right wing conspiracy, poor color choices on pant suits and people who don’t like baby seals I am announcing my choice for Vice President….Bill Gates!
He brings many positives to my historic campaign. His background will help me with my server and software issues. His philanthropy is legendary and we can afford to upgrade Camp David. Plus I need a guy named Bill to help advance my career.
By selecting Bill Gates I should easily capture the rich white male vote that has eluded me thus far. I respect all demographics (voice becoming shrill), especially those WHO VOTE FOR ME! Donald Trump is too reckless, thank God. Any other Republican with half a brain would have beaten me. Luckily, most of them lacked that half. (Uncomfortable moment as frozen smile ensues).
Thank and may whatever God you worship or ignore bless you.

ATW has secured the leaked Trump speech announcing his Vice Presidential Pick, excerpts below:
“Good Morning my fellow Americans! Thank you for applauding the superiority of me. Very fabulous. As you know from reading my book the Art of the Deal, I go yuuuuge! So when it came to honor someone by letting them stand close to me and bask in my glory as Vice President, I could choose no one better than Hulk Hogan! He is yuuuge! Right? Much bigger than Crooked Hillary.
Hulk is a fighter! A man who knows the arena. A World Champion which will clearly help with foreign policy. He is also not Muslim, Mexican, Cinese or some other kind of Loser. Plus his sex tape is tremendous. People who know are congratulating me on my choice. Except for Chris Christie who is also yuuuuge, but in a more McDonalds Way. Love the Chicken nuggets, we will make China super size their orders. I have many Chinese friends. Wonderful people, might all have jaundice but they know how to build a wall. Mine will be Greater cause size matters!
Hulk will be great, not as great as me but still great. People tell me I could beat him in wrestling, but I don’t wear gym shorts so we will just have to say I would have crushed him. I have better hair. Everyone knows that. It is time to make America great again, even though I will have to move into a smaller house. Hulk will be there with me, cause he represents the dignity, thoughtfulness and class that made this nation worthy of my being born here. Also he is not Muslim. Super, super guy. Very much so. Agree with me now. Thank me and good day!”

DAVID DAVIS MP as Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union. There’s a fancy job title for a flat-nosed working class boy. Talk about a job to get stuck into.
ConservativeHome ran his blueprint for re-joining the world last week. For now that has to be regarded as Plan A. We can go with Plan B after Boris Johnson has upset Johnny Continental in his job as Foreign Secretary. Yep, that’s the man who caused these headlines. And they say Theresa May has no sense of humour.
Davis says: “Once the European nations realise that we are not going to budge on control of our borders, they will want to talk, in their own interest.” He knows the score. In the end Berlin won’t damage German car makers so Poles can freely come to the UK.

THE LEFT used to love talking about Venezuela, back when Hugo Chavez was running the revolution and introducing price controls on food. How’s that working out?
BBC: Venezuela army deployed to control food production and distribution
Venezuela’s military has taken control of five ports in an effort to guarantee supplies of food and medicine.
In a decree, President Nicolas Maduro has ordered the army to monitor food processing plants, and co-ordinate the production and distribution of items.
Venezuela is going through a deep economic crisis despite having the world’s largest oil reserves.
The world’s largest oil supplies, and people are starving. Just think about that the next time some communist oik urges you to “resist capitalism”. At least it’s made Venezuelans forget that they can’t find toilet paper.

JOB DONE, no fuss, none of it written down. One out, one in. David Cameron went to Buckingham Palace a few minutes ago as the Prime Minister. He handed back the seals of office to their owner and left as a plain MP. A minute later Theresa May waltzed in and was invited by the Sovereign to form Her government. She is a mere servant, primus inter pares, first among equals in the Cabinet, but the sovereign authority of the British people rests elsewhere.
May then returned to Downing Street, where she spoke by warming over some Cameroon/Blairite mush. She’s not a socialist, but she’s an instinctive statist. I’m fed up with her already.

WELL, I could have a stab at describing goings on, but it’ll be out of date almost immediately. In short, it’s all the this –
Mentioning the death threats and bricked windows seems all so out of date, given that it was this morning. Oh, and the rearranged events due to death threats and the death threats referred to the Police. There’ll be a challenge against the leader, Corbyn, whose supporters are bricking and threatening anyone who opposes him.
UPDATE (and I haven’t posted this yet!): It’s red smoke. Corbyn is allowed to take part in the leadership contest. Which means Labour will fall apart just as fast as if he was forced off the ballot. In fact quicker. The party is done for, it’ll split.
If you have no idea what any of this means, don’t worry. The Labour Party tomorrow will look exactly like the picture again. Glorious.
